Vassen Cloud Nine Blue circle lens review from Pinkyparadise:
I think in bright, direct natural light these lenses look ~Amazing~, but unfortunately, in most other lighting, they look kinda dark on me. ^^; I’ve seen other reviews where they look really vibrant, but I guess my eyes are just difficult, lol.
These could have been my new favorite blue lenses if only they had been a little brighter~
Lens diameter: 14.5mm (for Plano)
Comfort: 8.5/10 – very easy to put in your eyes. Feels dry after a few hours of wear, however.
Enlargement: Pretty good for 14.5mm. Suggested for cosplay or Lolita wear.
Color/Design: Not completely opaque, but the color still shows up pretty well. The outer rim color is a nice gray/blue with golden brown flecks closer to the center. Fades to your natural eye color in the center. Gives eyes a marbled/opalescent effect.
I’ve tried GBT’s in Green before, and thought the effect would work well for Daenerys. While these aren’t the best choice for Anime cosplay, they work wonderfully for Dany, whose eyes are a bit more realistic-looking (blue in the TV series, violet in the books).
Color: 8/10 – not opaque, and not super vibrant. These will blend in with your natural eye color while giving a noticeable change. Violet shows up better than Green, in my experience.
Enlargement: 6/10 – These enlarge maybe a tiiiiny bit (which is what I was going for). Diameter is listed as 14.5 – seems more like 14 or 14.2, which is standard for non-circle lenses. Not your lenses if you want Huge Ugguu Anime Eyes.
Comfort: 10/10 – VERY comfortable. I couldn’t feel them after putting them in, and the smaller size makes them easy to put on/take out.
PinkyParadise is probably my favorite place to order lenses from due to their huge selection and good service! Shipping took a few weeks, but that is about the same for any overseas lens sellers.
These lenses definitely made a huge impact! They are very light and bright blue. They cover my eye color completely, and lend themselves to a very creepy/crazed appearance. These would get a perfect score in the color department, but they did not glow quite the way I was anticipating. I tested these under a black light, and they became pure white, instead of glowing a cool blue color like I was hoping. While I’m disappointed the glow effect wasn’t quite there, these lenses are still nice, color-wise, on their own.

I would recommend these lenses if you are going for a shocking or special effects/unhuman kind of look. These would not be the best for styles like Lolita or Ulzzang, since they are such a drastic block of opaque color.
Enlargement: N/A No enlargement since these are 14mm standard diameter lenses. These will not make you supah uguuu like circle lenses.
Comfort: 8/10 These felt very similar to the Emerald Green lenses I reviewed recently. They feel thick, which makes sense since they are so opaque. Also, I noticed a hazy halo around my vision, since the pupil hole is like, right there bordering the pupil. After adjusting (about 5 minutes) they weren’t as noticeable, but they still felt a bit thicker and not as comfortable as some lenses I’ve tried.
Design/Overall Appearance: 7/10 Again, not a bad pair of lenses, but I was a bit disappointed they didn’t glow this nice vibrant blue color like I was fantasizing about. XD Taking the glowing thing out of consideration, they still have a really striking impact. Also, I wouldn’t take my black light as the end-all-be-all. They might glow differently under different UV lighting/conditions, maybe? I dunno. You can see my little black light test of them, to see how they glowed, both in the pictures below, and in the video at the bottom of this page.
Opacity/Color: 10/10 If you’re looking for striking, vivid green lenses, these are for you. They show up remarkably well and are 100% opaque. They are noticeable even in crappy in-door lighting, and are easily noticeable even across a room. I was very impressed by how light and noticeable these are.

Enlargement: N/A There really isn’t any enlargement factor with these, since these are standard 14mm lenses. These lenses are probably better for clubbing/going out, or cosplaying more mature characters, since these won’t enlarge your eyes to uguuu proportions like circle lenses will.
Comfort: 8/10 I had to dock these a couple points due to them being a little difficult getting in my eye, and also for being a bit thicker than some other lenses I’ve tried. After 5 minutes or so, you won’t notice them as much. Keep in mind I’m also not a regular contact lens wearer, so I’m going to be more sensitive to how lenses feel than most. They also felt a little more curved than other lenses I’ve worn.
Design/Overall Appearance: 7/10 While I love the bright, super opaque color coverage, I kinda wish there was a little more detail to these than being just a solid block of color. I really can’t complain, though, considering how difficult it is finding a green lens that shows up so well. Green can be a, how should we say, finicky color to get right with lenses. Green lenses tend to blend in with my brown/sometimes hazel eyes, or look muddy. So, finding a green lens that shows up this well is pretty remarkable.
Overall, these lenses are a bit different than I would normally wear for cosplay, but they work surprisingly well. I would recommend these lenses if you want to change your eye color dramatically, but aren’t particularly concerned with making your eyes appear larger or going for that dolly-eye look.
